The food was excellent, tasty and reasonably priced. The staff couldn’t have been more welcoming. Would definitely be my first choice for curry when next in Amsterdam.

Good location and ambience. However, I felt the food was over priced and unauthentic Indian food. The preparation has downgraded in the last 1 year. Earlier it was really nice. In terms of the taste , you get the authenticity of the Indian taste and...More

On day 1 as I was missing indian food badly came to this place. Food is not extraordinarily good but fine. But somehow i think its a bit pricey than other indian places i have visited.

The best Indian food I've ever had. I'm not just saying that. Where I live there are about a dozen Indian restaurants within a few miles of my house, and I've been to most.

Average Food. Veg better than None veg. Service is somewhat confused. Incorrect items brought , taken back, but included in the bill. Place seems popular and was crowded. Location is Central. Maybe we should have tried the fish & seafood.

We came here the last time when we were in Amsterdam and really enjoyed it. So glad it’s still just as good and with great service. My hubby raved about the lamb chops.

Description
The Ganesha restaurant is in the heart of Amsterdam, close to the Central station. A perfect base for a day to end with Indian traditional dinner or you can continue your journey to nightlife in Amsterdam. The dishes are traditionally prepared. Also for people who have no experience with Indian food, it is definitely recommended to visit this restaurant. Do not be afraid of hot dishes. Our cook has thirty years experience and will cook according to your taste. It is a delicious experience, you should definitely try it. Not only for beginners but also a culinary experience for people who appreciate Indian cuisine. The NAAN, a traditional Indian bread, is also prepared in the clay oven at the same time , so it is always delicious, as it should be.
